    Be ware of the taxis and autorickshaws

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    One should avoid the Taxis and Autorickshaws out side the railway station and the airport. It is a better idea to go for a pre-paid taxi / auto as these are charged on a fixed basis by the state govt. If you miss taking the pre-paid taxi / auto, then be prepared for a tough bargaining with the drivers outside the staion and airport.
